I have 6 wonderful moms who volunteer in my classroom each week. I am so grateful for their help each week. I work in a district where I could probably have 26 (or more) wonderful parent volunteers each week. Lucky - I know. Having to "limit" the number of volunteers is a problem that every teacher probably would like to have.
I gave each of my volunteers a small gift this year. It's really not much considering how much support they provide for my students...but they seemed to like it. I found the idea here on Pinterest. If you visit the original link, you can download the tags. The photo below is my own display of
The gift that my students made for their parents is also an idea from Pinterest. They made tree ornaments out of 3 cardstock triangles, a little bakers twine and a jingle bell. My students were really proud of the way they turned out. You can find the original source here. The girls over at Eighteen 25 used the same cardstock for the whole ornament. In the spirit of being flexible (not exactly an easy thing to do), I let my kids choose any 3 triangles they wanted.
Today, I'm crafting at home. It's part of my plan to practice my OLW - relax.
